Softcover. Murder, mystery and suspicious death are often considered to be the province of the fiction writer where imagined characters solve difficult, complex and often dangerous crimes, the victims of which are invariably discovered dead. Yet as we are all too well aware when reading of our favourite detective, fiction can often be described as being the mirror image of fact. This is borne out by the stories which fill the pages of this book, any one of which could have been taken from the plot of the latest fictional crime best seller, The difference, of course, is that here every one is true. Each story contained with the pages of this book is a true account of a real event that had a serious inmpact upon the lives of those involved. These are stories that once shocked, horrified, and captivated the people of Nottingham as they followed the unfolding events through the pages of the newspapers that hit their door mats each evening. From the strange and macabre to murder and mystery, this book examines cases that once dominated the headlines. Analysing both motive and consequences alongside the social conditions prevalent at the time, it is a fascinating insight into a less well known period of Nottingham's past. Illus., Index. 160pp. 8vo. softcover. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F.
